I had my reception at Christie's of Genesee and I can't say enough good things about them. It was quite a party! Elegant, beautiful, great view, fun, unique. I wanted an intimate venue that was more than a blank canvas. Christie's already has rustic elegant decor. I also wanted something at altitude (~8,000 ft.) so it would be cool in a summer evening. I also wanted a venue that didn't nickel and dime you. Christie's included more in their easy price structure than any other venue and was a great value. Our guests were enamored with Christie's. Everyone said our wedding was "wonderful", "beautiful", "amazing", "awesome." Christie's had a lot to do with that! Christie's also has a separate but open concept bar, dining room, dance floor and patio. Each area has the same music playing, but at different volumes. I think the bar and patio made the wedding extra special because people who weren't dancing had a natural place to mingle and enjoy each other's company. We had about 100 people attend and it was a nice evening so it was not crowded at all. We could have invited more. I love Christie's of Genesee. I'm so appreciative of their great service the night of my wedding. Oh, and I forgot to mention their food is really, really good. We had them play our music and just had to test the CDs ahead of time. It worked out great.

Jane knows how to do a wedding, she understands how important this day is for you! They are a full service venue, and that makes it really convenient! Their food is amazing, you won't be disappointed with their catering! They provide the china and silverware, they provide linens and artificial flower arrangements, so if you are on a tight budget then it's a great option - we used our own linens and brought in fresh flowers, and that was fine also. Jane is very very patient and accommodating as she walks you through the process, and will answer any questions you have no matter how many times you have to ask her! :) Their location is beautiful and convenient, some people have mentioned being off-put that it is in a kind of strip mall location or close to the highway, but to be honest, those things did not impact my wedding day at all - it was beautiful. They have everything worked out that you could possibly imagine, they've done tons of weddings and there is no question they can't answer. The day of the wedding was perfect - the staff is extremely kind, patient, friendly, they got everything set up perfectly, very professional, they made sure everything was taken care of while still staying in the background, the wedding coordinator made sure everything flowed smoothly. They walk you through everything and make sure that you, the bride, are number one and happy. All of our guests loved the location, the staff, everything was perfect. Their pricing is laid out plainly and is reasonable, no surprises. I could not recommend any more highly!

Christies did na exceptional job with out wedding! They were so professional asked us when we were ready to do each activity and were wonderful at explaining the process of events that would occur that day! The food was excellent but the service was outstanding. They packed up all or cake and decorations and we were all able to dance and enjoy ourselves until the very last minutes of our event. They are very reasonably priced as well. We also brought in our own ceremony music and they did a wonderful job when one of the songs began to skip they just faded it out like it was suppose to happen. Beautiful garden area as well! We will be telling others to go to Christies perfect for a small wedding ours was abot 100 ppl.

Christies is the perfect venue for a all-inclusive venue. They have centerpieces for use, staff members are provided, they do all the little things for you that can add up to being a lot. They even have a staff member dedicated to you for the coordination of the day's events. There is no need to hire a wedding planner for the day of your wedding. The service was perfect, and the staff was very pleasant to deal with. They were very accomodating for what I was requesting too. And you will not find a place with the same services and value for the price. It is amazing what they do for weddings. My day was perfect.

Christies was fantastic! Before the wedding they were very quick to answer questions and very helpful as they have this wedding stuff down to a 't'. Of course I was a fairly laid back bride, so that helped as they would probably fall more in the lower rating for 'flexibility' for someone with more requests and plans. The day of they were wonderful!!! They kept the bridal party happy with drinks all night being delivered to us, the food was exceptional and the night ran so smoothly! I highly recommend them!!!

This was the perfect venue for our wedding and reception. The ceremony was small - family only; immediately followed by our reception with 110 people. We found the place by visiting their open house on a Saturday morning. Daniel, the head Chef is the one we first made contact with. The entire experience was great. Our wedding day coordinator was very good to work with. The food was wonderful. Christies was exactly what we wanted for a venue.

We had an evening wedding and it was amazing! Everything ran smoothly, the food was delicious and I didn't have to worry about anything. The location is beautiful especially at night when you can see the city lights and they have the garden lit up. Finding a place in the foothills/mountains can be really expensive, but they included so much and were inexpensive (comparitively).

This was a great place! I loved it. They did so much for so little and that really helped when I was working with a small budget. I just wish we could have taken home the left over food since a lot of people did not show up as it snowed on my wedding day. Even with the snow, everything there went great. The people were all nice and helped my through things that I wasnt quite sure on. Its a beautiful location.

This was a beautiful venue and I would definitely recommend it to many brides having a smaller wedding - less than 100 people. The only problem I had was their flexibility - they were not willing to accomodate many special requests so this would probably not be the best place for a bride that is very particular. The location is beautiful, the food is great and the staff did a great job on the day of the wedding.

The reasons we chose Christies were the location (in the mountains but not so far up that my mom, who fears driving in mountains, couldn't handle it; convenient to Denver), the cost, and the fact that they provide the DJ, bartenders, servers, and catering is done on site. Fewer decisions for me to make! The planning made me slightly nervous because we had one 1-hour consultation prior to the event and I was constantly calling or emailing with questions or things I didn't think to ask at the consultation, but it all worked out beautifully. They specialize in low-stress events, and they really do everything for you. On the wedding day we had a wonderful event coordinator who handled everything. The food was wonderful, and my guests were delighted that they served ice cream with chocolate sauce with our wedding cake (a surprise to us as well!) The location is beautiful. When we first drove up, and saw that it's kind of in a strip mall, I had my doubts, but once inside the views are so spectacular that I didn't hesitate at all. I'd recommend them any day!

The reasons we chose Christies were the location (in the mountains but not so far up that my mom, who fears driving in mountains, couldn't handle it; convenient to Denver), the cost, and the fact that they provide the DJ, bartenders, servers, and catering is done on site.

This event center is a 'diomond in the rough'. It doesn't look like much from the outside but once you are inside you'll love the qaint look. The garden where ceremonies are proformed is absoultely beautiful. They are colorful flowers (which cutts back on cost of flowers) all over the patio and there are strategically placed twinkle lights that bring out the illuminescence of the garden. The garden also inlcudes a small stream (with mini waterfall) which seperates the wedding party from the guests during the ceremony. The bridal party walks down the isle and over the streem (using a little bridge) to a panoramic view of the lights of denver. The inside of the event center had a nice large dance floor, dinning room and full bar. It is decorated with a mountain theme (elk antler chandeleer above dance floor) I strongly suggest an evening or afternoon wedding for this event center due to all the intricate lighting decorations and the view of denver from the garden. The reason why "Christies of Genesee" is so wonderful is because everything is included in the price (no extra charges for tables, chairs, table wear, service, plus all of the food is also included in the price and catered there- i might add their menu options are very versitle). A lot of event centers will try to squeeze every last cent from your pocket, yet Christies is very affordable and the managers are friendly and helpful. If you're lookinf to have a mountain wedding this is a good place to look into.

The day of our wedding the staff was really great--they really took care of us. But trying to work with Jane Christie I found fairly frustrating. It wasn't until our meeting one month before the wedding that I found out we couldn't do a lot of things, such as: have colored candles in the centerpieces, have bubbles for our "getaway," that we had to have the flower girls drop light colored petals (sparingly), and other "small" things.

But as I mentioned before, the day of went really well. So just make sure they give you all the details ahead of time, and you should be fine.

This venue was beautiful. For being on a bugdet it was the outdoor mountain wedding we hoped for. They catered the food, were our DJ, reception place as well as ceremony. It is kind of small but fit us woonderfully. The owners were hard to understand sometimes but the staff working on our wedding was the best. They were considerate, very nice to guests and us. They checked with us before anything went on. We were very pleased at the end of the day.

In general, our wedding was beautiful. Christie's is a great location with a beautiful outdoor setting. Our "wedding planner" for the event didn't even really speak English that well. I heard later from some guests that they couldn't hear the ceremony because of the noise from the highway outside. Also, there was a HUGE catastrophe with our music. We made CDs (which took hours) for every part of the event that we never heard over the speakers. And I don't know if the guests could even hear the music for the ceremony. When the dance music was supposed to be played, the DJ instead took requests rather than playing the music we MADE for it, labeled "DANCE MUSIC". It was infuriating. There was so much going on with guests and photographers and final things that we couldn't really step in. We still are upset about that part.

Not very flexible and have some silly restrictions. Customer service is not their strong suit (Except for the chef). Their biggest advantage is cost and the fact that it's a bundle deal- They take care of liquor and drinks, catering and music if you choose, and the garden really cuts down on florists costs. The garden is beautiful, especially at night.
The food was amazing and the event flowed smoothly.
Probably wouldn't recommend this venue.
